Cleft Chestnut Post & Rail

Cleft Chestnut Post & Rail

Cleft Chestnut Post and Rail, sometimes called Sussex Rail is made from untreated Chestnut hardwood.  The wood is cut during the winter when there is less sap in the wood, which increases the durability of the wood. All of our Chestnut post and rail is sourced from local producers.
